of the federal reserve do think we be looking at a very different america today. now it was not my choice to become the chairman of the federal reserve. the previous administration nominated ben bernanke. i voted for him and then when i became chairman of the banking committee in january 2007 for the first time, i went to a very frustrating year on that committee. on february 7 of 2007 i had my first hearings on the issue of the mortgage crisis in the country and we had 12 such hearings and that committee of the remaining ten months, almost one every month on this issue. and then i could not get the chairman of the federal reserve to pay as much attention as i thought he should have. at beginning and the latter part of 2007 and going forward, his leadership in my view is absolutely critical to avoid any kind of problem this country has faced. so mr. president, i'll stick for a few more minutes later in this debate, but i think we would make a great error indeed if we were to reject this nomination and not terminate this filibuster, both up and down on this nominee and provide the confiden

-century america like a boaltd of lightning. if you really want to hear about it the first thing you'll probably want to know is where i was born and what my lousy childhood was right. j.d. salinger's catcher in the rye was a literary sensation from its first appearance. the centra figure, 16-year-old n caufield, is one of the most recognizable figures in 20th century american fiction. the story isn't much, call spends a long weekend in new york wondering through central park visiting other haunts. it's not what he does. it's how hoe thinks and expresses those thoughts that has made "catcher in the rye" so compelling for so many for so long. in his feelings of isolation and awkwardness he was an early version of the postwar disaffected young. james dean in "rebel without a cause." dustin hoffman a decade later in "the graduate." let character was embraced by millions from artists and writers to the deeply troubled mark david chapman, who said he killed john lennon in 1980 to promote the book. the rough language in holden's brooding thoughts also made "the catcher in the rye" very controversial.

the federal money in reserve, mr. president, because america's debt is as big a problem as unemployment. number two, health care. here is what the president said on that. >> if anyone from either party has a better approach that will bring down premiums, bring down the deficit, cover the uninsured uninsured, strengthen medicare for seniors, and stop insurance company abuses, let me know. >> bill: okay. i'm up for the challenge. rather than spending still more government money creating an enormous bureaucracy, why don't we allow all health insurance companies to compete in all 50 states and then allow judges to punish people who sue doctors and other medical personnel for stupid reasons. that's what they do in great britain. if you file a nuisance lawsuit, a judge can order you to pay all the costs, that is known as tort reform. now, i agree with president obama the government should regulate health insurance companies. they can't be throwing people off the roles when they get sick and can't be fighting legit legitimate reimbursement. some insurance companies try to wear you down. that's

's interesting to invest money. the two principle areas now are in the united states, canada, north america and in asia. so both of those areas present a lot of very interesting opportunities. >> and when you're looking -- when you're on the ground in asia, where do you see the most vibrancy? we talk about china so much and some people question whether or not we can believe those number, 10.7 economic growth. is that what you are seeing when you are on the ground in china and is asia that you are looking. >> there are many places in asia. i think that's a limited approach. for example, we like india a lot. we've owned -- we own approximately eight companies now and right you in the middle buying two more. the indian growth story is really, really strong. china, of course, is really sort of on fire now. it's strong but it's got a lot of stimulus that's creating that strength but people are very aggressive, intelligent and it's clear that the leadership of the country is going to try and keep that growth rate at least in the 8% to 10% year-end. >> reporter: you say that the leverage is increa
is because nobody in america seems to know the bill. it's pieces of this and pieces of that and all crafted in back rooms and i have firsthand experience because i have family who lives there and they're experiencing their healthcare system. though you have national healthcare, you have to pay for things. if you don't pay for things, for example, if you want a blood test, get it for free from the hospital but if you go to a facility where a doctor is on staff, you pay 10, 30, $25 to get the same blood test. if you pay, you get it within a few hours to overnight. and if you go to the hospital for free, you'll get it in a week to ten days. is that what we want in america? i don't think so. >> are you thinking since massachusetts and the scott brown election, which is in large part voters there getting sick of the same thing you are. healthcare. the way the government a going about it. that maybe whatever the congressman's trying to come up with, they might not come up with it at all? in other words you're protesting something that might not happen. >> i hope by my voice being heard, we won't
. and now we have a great opportunity to have her become america's doctor and focused the attention around the country. and you know, as she said, we used to have a whole set of rules which were just given out to people, eat so many vegetables day, get your kids from behind the computer, go to the gym. but often that fell on deaf ears, and while those are very important things to do, if we are really serious about turning the corner on this issue, we need everyone to be involved. we need to make this a national crisis, and a nice a untracked national issue because it has a huge national impact that the president pointed out last night so allegorically that health care costs for average families are continuing to skyrocket making it very hard for families to pay the bills, and the ability of small businesses to keep affordable health care is getting more and more difficult, and that often impacts their ability to keep good employees, and expanded businesses. the unhealthier we are as a nation, the more our health care costs will continue to rise. and the less competitive we will be globally
of the economy is actually if you don't take steps to deal with the deficit. >> rose: in america there is a lot of talk about financial reform, there is talk about how you, what you allow banks who are deposit banks to do. no hedge funds, no private equity, no proprietary trading. where do you come down? >> we think that what president obama said recently was probably right. we think that you shouldn't have a situation where banks that are taking retail and corporate deposits are also making the riskiest sort of bets in terms of large scale proprietary trading. so we welcome what president obama said and we would like to work to get international agreement so that we all agree that there are some things that we will say that to banks they can't do. i don't want us to go back to the old-fashioned glass-steagall of somehow trying to divide retail banks from merchant banks. but i think that was right. the second thing that he said that we are very attracted to is that we do need, not just to build up funds to make sure we pay back the money that is been poured into the banks in the past t that we
and today, america's annual healthcare spending has gone from $75 million to over $2.5 billion. that's produced significant benefits for patients but it's also created a much bigger target for criminals. and a much bigger challenge for investigators. the difference has somebody said between catching fraud then and now is trying to find a penny in a bathtub and now we're dealing with finding pennies in a swimming pool. it's not that we didn't take steps to improve our ability to detect and prosecute fraud during those last forty years. we did. but the problem was that the fraud has grown faster than our solutions. we fell behind. and americans, frankly, have paid the price. today medicare, medicaid and private insurance companies all pay out billions of dollars in fraudulent claims. and charge americans higher premiums to pay for it. when a criminal sends a false claim to an insurer, he's stealing from all of us. and there are other victims too like patients who gets fake or unnecessary treatments from crooked healthcare providers who bill insurers for the full amount. so the perspect
